  • Motor building progress

    Well, I had about 6 hours in the shop this morning and made some pretty good progress on the motor. Did a little pre-assembly to make sure everything lines up. Getting ready to work on the gear case

        Nice! Now there is a motor I could generate some interest in building. Too bad I don't know enough to even start. Is this from plans?

          Sharp Looking!

          Wow! That is nice.

          I'm with BD. I was never into building engines unless I could put them to work. I could certainly find a use for something like that.

            Looks good.

            Have to take that back, it looks great.

            How many hours so far ?
            Displacement ?

              These were plans from Jerry Howell. It is all made from bar stock so you don't need to purchase any castings. I did purchase all the fastners, bearings and hard to find stuff from him. It make it a lot easier than trying to find all those small fastners. Most all of them are stainless but the ones you see are just temporary. I have plenty of screws on hand but the final assembly will be all stainless. I think it is 32cc. I needed something to work on - not that I don't have enought projects but I really wanted to do something different. On of the other members, jdunmyer is a friend of mine and he and his buddy has built a few engines in the past. Last year I built an all aluminum utitlity trailer so this year I thought I would do something small and detailed. I have about 60 hours in in so far and probably will have another 140 hours until it is finished. I must say, I think things are moving faster than I expected. The gear case is very involved so I'm getting a little nervous about attacking this part.

                  Great looking work Jeff. I have the plans for it but haven't had time to start yet. For those of you wanting to know more about this engine here is a link to Jerry's website and this engine.


                  Very good website with lots of interesting stuff. Check it out.
